  1. 1. My name is Richard Charlton-Pharris Jones. I use my hyphenated middle name professionally as a published writer: as an award-winning editor for Morris Brown College's student publication, The Wolverine Observer, as well as a senior staff writer for the San Diego Voice & Viewpoint, The Source magazine, and various Internet websites. My full name is also used on the cover of my first novel, Two of Hearts (ISBN 1-4241- 9266-8 Publish America), which was published while a junior at Morehouse College, 2007. During my visit to South Africa in 2007, as an Oprah Scholar on the behalf of Morehouse College, the South African students named me 'Mlungisi Secheba’, which is translated from the Xhosi and Afrikaan languages as 'Fixer of Nations'. I completed my bachelor's degree in English at Morehouse College in 2008, a goal that I have pursued for ten years. I have recently completed my second novel, TRI (ISBN is 978-0- 9823879-2-4) which will be published May 2010. I have recently been added to the staff of the Andrew and Walter Young Family YMCA, after volunteering for a year with their after school program. The unusual love triangle I have written about is titled TRI and it is the story of Inanna, an exotic entertainer and Rajah, a spiritual spoken word artist turned rapper, and the tightly-wound writer they both physically and emotionally with, Tierre Tisdale Thomas. From humble beginning to tragic end, TRI offers superb characterizations of desire, bliss, lust, rage, doubt, torment, and suffering. How this love TRIangle is revealed and resolved is deceptively simple: the novel expresses how in the short time of a few weeks and culminating in one explosive childhood game of Truth or Dare, true feelings of love can develop and unravel with equal depth and passion.
  2. 2. Introduce yourself to – Tierre: He fully discovers his identity as a serious author in the fiery union with a New Year’s Eve one-night-stand. In an unusual twist of fate, his artistic odyssey will take him from Rajah to Inanna, although only one of them knows who they are truly getting involved with… Rajah: With dramatic insight and sensitivity, he becomes the link between his lover and sister which consumes them all in a combustible mix of sexual politics and pain… Inanna: Where her brother is light, she is dark, and she doesn’t give a damn who gets theirs, so long as she gets hers! Each chapter is uninhibited, offering a searing treatise on dating, relationships, and the tenuous situation gay men and bisexual women find themselves in sexually and romantically…
